Insta Scoop: Kris Aquino Shows the Effects of Her Ailment






This is my story. My urticaria flares started in 2013, but i thought they were allergic reactions & called them hives. They’ve steadily worsened to about 2 bad episodes a month lasting at least 4 to 7 days. I have no food allergies except crab & lobster (based on my πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬ full allergy test)... What happens when you suffer from an autoimmune disease? I researched in healthline.com so i could easily explain it since i have so many doctors who are now friends that i unknowingly use medical terms. The immune system mistakes part of your body — like your joints or skin — as foreign. It releases proteins called autoantibodies that attack healthy cells. Women get autoimmune diseases at a rate of about 2 to 1 compared to men — 6.4 percent of women vs. 2.7 percent of men. Often the disease starts during a woman’s childbearing years (ages 14 to 44). My Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria afflicts less than 1% of the world’s population. Most suffer through it for 1-5 years. Some suffer through it for decades- i fall under that category... i found my doctor here, Dr. Geraldine Zamora through @trishaduncan who had done an @everbilenaofficial @krislifekit webisode w/ me. She introduced me to the head of their Asean Doctors group. He is an allergy, rhueumatoid, and immunology specialist. He’s the 1 we flew to Singapore to consult... Dr. Geraldine has been so patient answering all my concerns & helping explain my diagnosis... i believe everything happens as part of God’s plan for our lives. i have the platforms to raise awareness about this medical challenge... Stress we cannot avoid, but it is a big factor. A healthier food plan with vegetables (except alfalfa sprouts), fruits, fiber rich food, oatmeal, lean cuts of beef (for iron & vitamin D which are depleted), beans (thank God i like garbanzos), and fatty fish are all helpful. And very importantly, she advised to be in bed by 9:30 PM & sleeping soundly at 11 PM. Sorry i’m going over my prescribed bedtime, but i edited this video myself. Thank you to all who messaged me w/ love & prayers... Good night. Yes, i’m starting to SMILE from my heart again.🌈❤️πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ

    1. 12:56 Porselana? Not at all. I saw her in person, up close, daming pekas. Kung puti talagang maputi pero tadtad ng pekas.

    2. I’m sorry 5:46, I’ve seen and approached her while she was filming CRA last year in SG, and I must say, sobrang flawless nya. Sa sobrang pagka-fair nya, nagliliwanag sya from afar.

  2. Even if I don't like you I still wish you get well. I had the same condition last year. I went to a naturopath doctor because I refuse to take medicines that only treat the symptoms and not the cause. He took me off grains, cereals, had a gluten free diet, no processed food, sugar, carbs only from veggies. It was difficult at first because my brain has been wired to enjoy these foods. It was a struggle but my health improved. I have lots of energy now. Rashes do come back if and when I eat the food that I am not supposed to eat. As Hippocrates believed let food be they medicine and medicine be thy food. Rashe

    1. This is so true. Food is medicine! Heal your gut and heal your life!

    2. @12:58. Same here. My naturopath asked me to religiously take zinc, d3, and probiotics. So far, hindi pa bumabalik yung rashes ko.

  3. Vitamin D has several important functions. Perhaps the most vital are regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and facilitating normal immune system function. Getting a sufficient amount of vitamin D is important for normal growth and development of bones and teeth, as well as improved resistance against certain diseases.

    2. i agree. wag matakot sa araw. kaya eto sunog na ko

      Delete
    3. 12:58 Tama! ARAW is life! Yung iba takot magpa-araw dahil ayaw umitim. E di wag magpa-araw ng tanghaling tapat! Maganda sa health ang magpawis dahil sa sikat ng araw. Pinalalabas ang toxins sa katawan. Yung iba nagpapawis nga sa gym pero naka-aircon pa rin.

  4. She needs to get some sun to strengthen her immune system. Takot kasi sa araw.

    1. Hindi “lang” ang allergies! It can be dangerous if not treated well. May allergies na hindi ka makahinga at puwede mo ikamatay.

      Delete
    2. Hindi yan "lang". Madaming types ng allergies. Meron mild lang, meron naman na malala. Yun iba nakukuha sa simpleng loratadine pero may mga kaso na kailangan ng mas matagal na medical management.

      Kung baka sayo, konting pantal lang. Sa iba hindi. I have seen cases that turned bad dahil sa severe anaphylaxis.

  6. I have rheumatoid arthritis which is an autoimmune disease. I was diagnosed 8 yrs ago when I was 20 yrs old. So sad lang kasi for lifetime na yung meds ko. Kaya I feel you Kris. Mahirap magkasakit kahit ano pa yan. Makakayanan naten to!

  9. I also have urticaria and they flare up for unknown reasons. Konting stress lang namamantal na agad :( Lumabas lang ako after a hot bath sa room na may aircon, flare up agad. And mine is mild pa lang sa lagay na yun. I can just imagine chronic urticaria... I wish her well. Mahirap i-manage ang urticaria but kayang kaya malampasan on a daily basis...
